The Medical Counselling Committee (MCC) is providing online reporting for candidates for the second counseling of NEET PG 2020 on an individual basis following the existing conditions of Covid-19 and for addressing the issues faced by the students in physically appearing for the counseling. Many candidates have communicated with the MIC the problems they will face in physically presenting themselves at the colleges due to the non-availability of transportation and accommodation.
There are many NRI students who are stranded outside the country as well. MIC has decided to conduct online reporting for candidates in the second counseling on a case to case basis. The genuineness of the case will be left to the discretion of the college. The candidature of those students who were allotted seats in the first round of counseling and reported online but failed to physically present themselves at the college before the last day will be canceled by the college. The seats will be reverted to the system for future rounds of counseling and their security deposits will be forfeited.

The candidates who do not report at the allotted college or fail to commit online reporting will be marked ‘Exit with Forfeiture’. The candidates who joined the All India Quota (AIQ) seats in both first and second rounds will not be allowed to vacate their seats. This is done to reduce the number of seats that gets converted from the AIQ to the State Quota and also to fill maximum AIQ seats from the all India rank list. Further, the candidates who secured admission in Deemed Universities pursuant to the second round of counseling by the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS) cannot participate in any other counseling.
Initially, MCC had permitted candidates of Round 1 to report online but physical reporting was made mandatory in Round 2. According to the MCC, since the pandemic was getting its toll on the nation, the need for doctors for clinical management of COVID patients was going up drastically and hence physical reporting was to be made mandatory. The candidates allotted with seats were asked to report physically at the respective colleges from June 16.
